  1. You need to setup your ssh settings first.
  2. You need to a local git checkout of the site as described in Local development.
  3. You need to be in your project directory: cd ~/Projects/your-site/
  4. You need to have production set as git remote:
# Here we are using custom alias 'your-site' in ~/.ssh/config
$ git remote -v
production  your-site:/data/wordpress/.git (fetch)
production  your-site:/data/wordpress/.git (push)

# This is the output if project was cloned without ssh alias
$ git remote -v
production  ssh:// (fetch)
production  ssh:// (push)

Deploy using git

Note: This doesn’t deploy the database or the contents of uploads. We recommend that you don’t include these in git.

$ git push production master

If you have a working site in the Vagrant box and you want to deploy it

Step 1 - Get SSH credentials

First you need to order a site from in order to get SSH credentials. Once you recieve the SSH credentials, you can configure SSH keys and such as are described in the Configuring SSH section.

Step 2 - Configure git remote ‘production’

# Go to your project folder
$ cd Projects/your-site

# Add new remote to git
$ git remote add production ssh://

Note: This is just an example. Use the real credentials for your site.

Step 3 - Push into ‘production’

$ git push production master

If you have git hooks configured they will trigger automatically on the git push.

For deploying the database contents or the contents of the uploads folder you will need to roll your own solution which is safe enough to not overwrite any data created in production.

Note on wp-push- commands: In Seravo Vagrant images created before October 5th, 2016, there used to be the commands wp-push-production-db (deploy database to production) and wp-push-production-uploads (deploy wp-content/uploads into production) but they were deemed as too risky and removed to protect customers from accidentally making too much damage to their site.
